Paul Gant Gilliford (born January 12, 1945, at Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania) is a retired American professional baseball player, a left-handed pitcher who appeared in two Major League games for the 1967 Baltimore Orioles during the course of a five-year (1965–1969) career. He was listed at 5 feet 11 inches (1.80 m) tall and 210 pounds (95 kg).

In Gilliford's second pro season, 1966, he led the Class A Florida State League in earned run average (1.27) and posted a 16–3 won–lost record. After splitting the 1967 minor league season between the Class A California League and the Double-A Eastern League, Gilliford was called up by the MLB Orioles for a late-season trial. He pitched two scoreless innings against the Washington Senators in his debut,[1] but in his second appearance, also in relief four days later, the Boston Red Sox reached him for five hits, including a home run by George Scott, and four earned runs.[2] In three Major League innings pitched, Gilliford gave up six hits and one base on balls, with two strikeouts.

He returned to the minor leagues in 1968–1969 before leaving the game.
